Questions concerning the DGM technical committees or forums?

With its around 80 technical committees, community committees and working groups, in which over 2,500 experts come together every year, the DGM connects, regardless of the class of materials,  natural science-orientated material scientists with engineering-dominated material engineers as well as theory with practice and research with industry - all at the highest international level. In doing so, the DGM makes an important contribution to the success of German science and industry and ultimately to the well-being of our society.
